You may now explore all the zones when you reach the max level. Therefore, when you are with the horde, you may now infiltrate the zones of the Seafaring Kingdom Kul Tiras.
In the PVP system, players may choose to enter the battleground riskier or in neutral. You’ll be wary of the other teams that may attack your stronghold. Indeed, riskier yet more fun. Great rewards also wait for those players who opt-in PVP.
